POST 096 PZ -Social & Political Justice

Institution: Pitzer

Description: What is justice? This seemingly simple question has elicited complex responses. Based on their notions of social and political justice, people have developed laws, formed institutions, created political communities, and waged wars. In this seminar, we explore the implications of these debates for contemporary political communities in local and global contexts. Questions include: what makes a political, moral, social or religious order just? Are there certain principles of justice that people across cultural and political boundaries agree upon? How can these debates help us become more informed, engaged, and responsible citizens in our respective communities?
